Admission to the Graduate Program in Taxation is highly selective. A candidate's performance in law school tax courses and his or her overall law school record are of particular interest in evaluating the application.
Prior to enrollment, full-time and part-time applicants must have earned a J.D. degree from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association and must have successfully completed the equivalent of a basic introductory J.D. Federal Income Tax course. To apply, candidates must submit:
Decisions are made as applications are received. Candidates are therefore encouraged to complete their applications as early as possible.
Full-time students may matriculate only in the fall semester. At the discretion of the Director, part-time applicants may commence in any semester and may later convert to full-time status.
With the approval of the Director, a student may transfer up to six credits of graduate-level work completed in a graduate tax program offered at another accredited law school if the work was completed within four years prior to transfer.
Application to the University of Miami School of Law may be made through Miami Law's Master of Laws Programs Online Application or through LSAC's Service. (If using LSAC's Service, applicants must register and pay for the LSAC LL.M Credential Assembly Service[CAS] and Letter of Recommendation Service. Applicants must request LSAT scores separately from the CAS report.)
